Purchased a rope fish yesterday from the LFS
. Since I brought him home he just sits in one spot, doesn't eat even after putting blood worms right in his face. His gills are moving so I know he is alive but he doesn't seem to be doing well. If I put my hand in the tank he starts freaking out, swimming erratically and then goes back to sitting in one spot and doing nothing for hours. I put my hand in there cause I thought he was dead.
said he had been there one week before I purchased him. Just wondering if this is normal for a newly introduced rope fish. Going to put him in my breeder deal to monitor him more closely. Also going to go get a couple different types of food to put in with just him and see what happens.
